Quirky venue, but clean, comfortable and contemporary.
It is a special place with quirky atmosphere. Staff was friendly and helpful even if working under pressure of coming lockdown. Bed was really comfy and the kitchen is very well equipped. I liked that there were a few launches to relax or play a game.
The room was very tiny but well it used to be a jail cell so i guess it is part of the experience lol
A unique place to stay
The kitchen was a bit grubby
We just needed to be close to train station which it was. 20 minute walk but it is far away from anything else The building is like being in a cave so all noise is heard and amplified. The two foot walls do not help as it all comes through the huge gap under the door. Very little space to hang our comfortably, they have put some spots 3 feet away from. Peoples bedroom door
I was staying in an old jail cell. It was exciting.
